A new-to-me 3D printed camera!

I’m not yet set up for own 3D printing, so my friend Nick (IG @littlekulamonster77) is helping me out. It is a medium format, 120, camera, and shoots in a 6×9 ratio.

This is a 34 hour print, and will be done in two batches. When it’s finished, it will be a pinhole camera. I’m using a 0.2mm pinhole, so I will need to recalculate the f/stop, as the maker intended 0.23mm, but I wanted to go with a commercially made, laser cut pinhole. I picked it from ebay from this seller: https://www.ebay.com/usr/fireseller66

In the case of using a smaller aperture, it’s a 29mm focal length, and a .2mm aperture. Which works out to f/145.

Using the Mr.Pinhole Calculator: http://www.mrpinhole.com/calcpinh.php

We get this:

This a view of the camera when completed, I’ll be using a wood veneer to produce a similar effect.

Overall, I’m excited to take this guy for a spin, and will report back!
